While Watch OS remains on top with 22% of shipments in Q3 2021, Wear OS achieved 17%.
The alliance between Google and Samsung in this area not only included a change of platform, both companies collaborated to fix the biggest problems of Wear OS .
“Google has maintained a dominant position in the market for cell phones with Android OS , but so far it has not achieved much in the market for wearables . This is because Google prevented smartwach manufacturers from customizing the user interface, in addition to not offering good energy efficiency and having a slow response time, “said Sujeong Lim, analyst at Counterpoint Research .
Other brands have their own operating systems. Among them, Amazfit OS , Fitbit OS and Lite OS stand out.
